I am switching my phone from Droid X to something new one (probably Droid Charge..) soon.After I switched, my old Droid can be used for checking email or surfing web within Wifi area? Since my Droid will soon end its contract, I want to give it to my friend who just wants to have it as a web checking device.
I am searching for a app that will automatically switch my WiFi signal from one signal that is weak or getting weak to another signal that is stronger. Example I am at work and I will be connected to a hot spot on one side of the building, I go over to the other side of the building and the signal strength is weak and there is a new hot spot next to me that is extremely strong but the phone stays connected to the weak signal until I go and switch it manually to the new hot spot.
I currently have a jailbroken iPhone 4 and am about to get a HTC One. I used MyWi to tether a WiFi signal while connected to my house's WiFi network to my laptop via USB. I want to be able to do this with Android as well.
So I wanted to install a custom ROM to my P350 today and it seems I can't get into recovery mode. When I try to get into recovery, it shows the LG screen, shows that recovery mode screen, freezes on that screen, reboots and EVERYTHING ON MY PHONE GETS RESET,
I've tried 3 different ways to get into recovery, all of them have this result. It is very annoying that each time I try to get into recovery the phone gets a factory reset. How can I get into recovery?
I have a LG P350 which development has stopped but i want to keep it updated, i have my computer ready for building, also i have kernel sources, Cyanogenmod 11 and 10.1 sources too, (I don't know exactly if 10.1 sources could work) and i know that i need to apply patches to work on Armv6 but i don't know how to apply them to the source code, also i don't know if i would just need the pure source code to build or i need to do more modifications to it and finally, i don't know if the rom would work with 2.36 kernel which it's the most stable one for this device, i'm very new in this but i know that i can keep update my little phone,
In my house, my signal is crap...I even miss texts....I'll have a "4G" icon one minute, and absolutely nothing the next..on the phone plugged into the charger, sitting in the exact same place.Same thing even happens outside...I've called Verizon, and all they want to do is sell me the repeater thing...
I've found a few articles about this subject on the web, but they seem to be dated...I'd REALLY like the phone to automatically to switch to WIFI calling/receiving, when I hit my home network.But if I have to switch it myself....
I am virtually unable to get a wifi signal in my house on my droid x unless I am a few feet away from my router. None of my other wifi devices in my house are having this issue. When I check my wireless settings on my dx it says the signal strength is poor. I'm running rooted GB 4.5.602. Does the baseband have to do anything with this (BP_C_01.09.13P)?
I'm having problem with my micromax funbook p350. When ever i restart the phone, it comes in factory default mode. I don't know what is the exact problem. I can't even install extra apk files due to that. I want to flash my micromax p350 but i can't get the exact rom for it anywhere ? not even here....... and i don't know much about flashing android and solve this problems.
how to change the icon of its battery, WiFi and signal bar. I was able to successfully root the phone..I wanted the phone to look original by changing those icons. Even if i try to apply different themes those icons wont change. And another problem is Phone Coverage Signal weak or lost, another phone can receive 50% or full coverage signal.
I am using the Galaxy grand I9082 Duos. I have a simple problem in WIFI signal strength, on this device signal strength showing very weak for a distance of 3 to 4 meets away from the wifi router in the next room. But Laptop shows good strength at same point.
If I take my mobile close to router shows very good strength.
I want to reach out to others here before I take my Moment back to Best Buy to exchange it for another Moment.
My signal strength fluctuates wildly just sitting in the same spot. With the Hero I got a constant 5 of 6 bars, but the Moment will vary between 0 and 5 of 6 bars. But it's more complicated than that.
It seems that whenever the EVDO data kicks in, it causes the signal strength to drop to 0 or 1 bar. Once the data is idle, the EVDO indicator turns grey and then changes from EV(^v) to EV(D). At that point the single strength will return to 3 or 4 bars.
At times, though not as consistently or often, the EVDO connection will fall back to 1xRTT and will switch between them every few minutes. This will occur even when the signal strength bars are in the 3 to 4 range.
So, the my questions are...
Does the signal strength apply to the data signal or just the voice signal?
Is there any legitimate reason for the signal strength to vary wildly like I've described, even when sitting in the same recliner where the Hero had a constant 5 bar connection and data service that never wavered?
Is anyone else having signal strength and/or data service issues?
Should I exchange the Moment for another Moment or will I likely experience the same issue?
I have a Apple Time capsule I use for my router and I'm not getting very good signal when using wifi on my EVO. If I'm sitting on my couch 8 ft away it only gets 1 signal bar on the phone. If I walk up to it with my phone the signal starts to get better. Any advice? I have the Time Capsule because I use a MAC. Just FYI before the bashing starts.
Originally when I contacted HTC about wifi issues I got an email reply with a potential solution in it to try. That solution didn't improve anything so today I received a phone call from them. The person I spoke with was trying to collect as much info as possible. Evo software version, s/n, meid, type of router i use, distance away from router when signal drops out etc.I asked him if they'd been able to find something wrong with hardware or software so far and he said i'm the first person that he was actually able to get a hold of to get feedback. Seems like this is in the infant stages.While the evo was booting up I asked if there are anymore OTA updates coming soon and he said they are working on a lot of fixes right now so it was hard to say. I also asked when evo would be getting 2.2 and he didn't sound optimistic about getting it soon. His understanding was that nexus recently released to press that it was getting 2.2, he doesn't think the actual phones even have it yet.
The wifi indicator sometimes only show 1bar. Meanwhile i sitting maybe 10 feet away from my modem/router. Speed test shows me getting 3200 kbps down and 1200 kbps up.With two bars I am getting 8700 down and 2400 up. I never get 3 bars. Any analysis of these numbers? Are they typical? Anything I can do to achieve 3 bars?
I just had little scare, my WiFi signal went down for about 15 minutes. Luckily, my 3g signal was still up. But, how freaked out do you get or would you get if your signal went down? Kinda shows how much I relay on the internet
I was talking to my friend the other day, and supposedly her friend showed her how his blackberry when having no cell signal, could connect to a wifi signal, and then through that signal have service and call/text. Can the hero do that?
